Oprah Winfrey announced that she's going off the air next year, and it has not set well with me at all. I can not tell you how many persons have told me, "Girl, I've got to finish my book so I can get on the show before she goes off the air", and so many other comments. But for me, Aunty "O" leaving the air, hurts... I can't say it any other way. She means a lot to the "balance" of this Country and the intelligence (the fact that we have it) to the African American people. I am pained to see her go.
